 Nestle Waters' Pure Life Water

Description

Nestle Waters' Pure Life Water features purified water enhanced with essential minerals, free of calories, caffeine and additives. This bottled water is purified using reverse osmosis or distillation. Since purified water is free of most minerals, Nestle Waters has added trace minerals calcium chloride, sodium bicarbonate and magnesium sulfate.

Nestle Waters produces Pure Life Water through a rigorous 14 step quality process. Water is collected through a tested source (such as a well or municipal supply) that is monitored daily. Activated carbon filtration, micro filtration, ultra-violet light and ozonation disinfection processes filter and disinfect microbiological contaminants. A remineralization process adds a balance of minerals for health and taste.

In 2004, the Institute of Medicine, through its Food and Nutrition Board (FNB), released their recommendations for water and electrolyte dietary intakes. Electrolytes such as sodium, chloride and magnesium help to control fluid levels in the body, maintain normal pH levels, and conduct transmission of nerve signals.

The FNB set general recommendations for hydration, recommending women's intakes at approximately 91 ounces of total water daily (from beverages and food) and men's at approximately 125 ounces of total water daily. Healthy adults should consume 1.5 grams of sodium and 2.3 grams of chloride each day to replace the amount lost through sweat. However, prolonged physical activity and heat exposure increases water losses and may raise daily fluid and electrolytes needs.


Pros

Nestle Waters adds a light blend of minerals to enhance taste and health. The mineral content of Pure Life Waters is measured scientifically as TDS (total dissolved solids), identifying the amount and type of minerals present. Nestle Waters screens for over 200 possible contaminants through a carefully controlled filtration and disinfection process.

Pure Life Water has the following benefits:

  • A rigorous 14 step quality process
  • Screens for over 200 possible contaminants
  • Enhanced with essential minerals
  • No added calories, caffeine or additives

Cons

More than half of all Americans regularly drink bottled water, although they have access to safe public drinking water. Many consumers believe that bottled water is safer to drink than tap water. However, research suggests that using plastic polycarbonate containers to store water may leach a toxic chemical, bisphenol A (BPA). BPA has been found to produce birth defects and developmental abnormalities in mice. Safer plastics to store water and food include polypropylene (designated #5 PP), high-density polyethylene (designated #2HDPE), and low-density polyethylene (designated #4 LDPE). The safest choice would be to store water in clean glass containers.

I have been mostly drinking bottled water for a long time. Contrary to what people say, i have actually found that bottled water is safer than tap water. Pure life contains water that has been treated with reverse osmosis, and is filtered to make the water as pure as possible. I drink this everyday, and i must say i love the taste, and i feel like i am doing something good for myself.
